From tap. Pours dark brown, deep amber glare. Large, creamy and tan head. Aroma is dark malty, chocolate. Bitter, mild fruity. Dark malty, chocolate and breadish. Lingering roasted, chocolate malty far finish. Ungstrup (38986) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2007
Bottled. A hazy red-brown beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with strong notes of chocolate, as well as lighter notes of coffee and alcohol. The flavor is slightly acidic from hard roasted malt, but may also from a slight infection, which gives it a light touch of vegetables. If just the flavor was as good as the aroma. joergen (29625) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 17, 2008
Draught at GABF 2008.
Dark brown coloured with a small beige head.
Light roasted aroma of hops, pin eneedes and grape fruits.

Leighton (22820) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2017
Bottle in MV - picked up in CT. Pours rich brown with a creamy, tan head. Nice roasted malt aroma, with ample chocolate, some burnt toast. Medium sweet flavour with nice, gooey chocolate character, some raisins, brown bread, fudge, subtle burnt earth bitterness. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Pretty good balance in the finish, with nice chocolatey depth, further roast, cocoa, soft ash, dried berries. Great porter overall. fiulijn (21516) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 21, 2007
Dark brown color, hazy. Caramel and chocolatey beer, quite strong bitterness; some nutty aroma; good body strength; in the end there is also enough roasted malt. It may be not bad, but it’s a bit infected, with some sourness. rlgk (18843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2016
Can from Top Hops, New York. Dark mahogany beer with a rich beige head. Licorice aroma, chocolate, fruity, caramel and bread. Roasted chocolate flavor, caramel, cocoa, some tobacco. Surprisingly thin bodied. brokensail (16689) - Dublin, California, USA - JAN 23, 2011
A: The pour is a dark brown color with a bit of red when looked at through the light. There’s a finger of tan foam to cap it off.
S: Pretty typical aroma for a porter. Some dark chocolate to go with a lot of roasted malt notes. There’s a little bit of vanilla, even, and certainly a touch of coffee.
T: Like the nose, the roasted malt character is strong in this beer. A mild bitterness results, but there’s a smooth, sweet chocolate flavor to mellow that out. Seems to be even a hint of vanilla or cream.
M: The body is medium with a moderate level of carbonation. Not quite creamy on the tongue.
D: I really enjoyed this beer, as I have with almost all Central Waters beers. A really nice one to enjoy last night. Dedollewaitor (16545) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2010
Bottle @ J.C.G US Tasting, Pt 3. Pours dark ruby brown with a small creamy head and lacings. Nose is vague roast and chocolate. Flavor is ashy and roasted. Medium bodied.
